If you’ve been anticipating today and the usual mandalas, I apologize. Given the tragic shooting that occurred on Friday in Connecticut I haven’t been particularly inspired to create any mandalas or even dig out any old ones. It somehow felt inappropriate or inadequate. I can only offer this image and quote which is the front of one of my note cards and the sentiment that I kept thinking about all weekend, from the very wise Mr. Rogers, “There are times when explanations, no matter how reasonable, just don’t seem to help.”
Beautiful image, Gail, and the words are so appropriate. Heartbreaking.
I could not agree more. My heart has been aching and I can literally feel it weighing heavily in my chest over this tragedy. Even the word tragedy seems inadequate. I appreciate how you feel and I hope we can all work through this horrible grief together. Thanks for the beautiful image.
